20 Most Recent Hughes HDVR2 with 105 Hrs DirecTV DTV Receiver Questions & Answers


Call customer service and ask for compatible receivers at no cost since they upgraded your odu (outside dish unit) and left you with no service in 2 rooms. Let them know how upset you are and demand an answer to why the technician left you without SWiM compatible receivers in all the rooms. Call 800 531 5000 and request to speak with a supervisor. They have the authority to override. If customer service dept does not cooperate then ask to be transferred to the customer retention dept. You will get results there. Remember you are the customer not them. Good luck!

I bet you $120.00 you did not have a 1000VA UPS on it. If I was right, you can pay me now, and I can send you one.

You need a new DTV.....or it will cost you $150.00 to fix.

The thinner they are the faster they blow...by the way they have a computer in there. You are luck you did not loose other stuff.

I found the manual for that model online, and according to it, the "Live TV" button should function exactly the same way your old Tivo did.

If it's not working correctly, you may want to contact the manufacturer, assuming it's still under warranty.

I had the vary same problem, One solution is to remove the s-cable and use the analog video out, I have read lots of forums about this, it works for most people, No one seems to know why the s-cable causes pixelation on sat 2 input, and can't find anybody that can fix it completly, check forums at weak knees.com and tivo comunity. Good luck. ddftoc.

Direct TV has been working on numerous software issues. Some patches have been downloaded for TiVo that in some cases have caused problems. In your case, it is more possibly an indication that the hard drive is not running and you have a possible hardware failure. When you rebooted and became stuck on the "welcome, powering up screen", it could be an indication of a software glitch or a hard drive failure. I would go with a hard drive failure. Since this is a Hughes Receiver like mine and you own it, you could try a drive swap with another TiVo drive out of a like receiver. If one is not available, you may have to purchase one. Pre-configured and initialized drives are available from www.weaknees.com. I have no interest in them, but that is where I buy Tivo pre-configured Hard Drives from. You can get replacement or upgrade Maxtor Drives preconfigured from them for this specific brand and model of TiVo DVR. A drive swap would be cheaper troubleshooting. There is also a possibility of a problem with the built-in IDE controller or the power supply on your receiver which can't be determined until you do swap out with a Known Good Drive to eliminate a hard drive problem. If you are able to swap it out and If the good drive works, then your old one has corrupted data and would need to be re-initialiaed and reloaded. If it is an older smaller (35 hour) drive, you would be better off with a new replacment since the loading is a somewhat lengthy process and must be done on a computer running the Linux Operating System.

The pausing can be a sign that the DVR is having memory allocation problems. These are software issues and cannot be repaired, look for a software update to your unit. In addition if it is a hardare issue I would check the signal into the unit because when the picture freeze it could be due to a drop in signal. Now if these two are not the cause there is a third possibility, and that is a defective hard drive or memory storage device and its associative circuitry in the unit. I would suggest that you either have this unit replaced by the company that supplied it or take it to a qualified repair center.

check first the main power supply which is AC line get the voltage reading.if it is right check the plug of your Hughes HTL-HD receiver so if the problem is still going on, check the power supply section.
